If you are looking for a new mystery series, try Jude Deveraux’s Medlar Mystery series. I recently read the third novel, A Forgotten Murder. In this series a trio of characters stumble across murders that have mostly been forgotten and unsolved. There is a hint of romance as well as some quirky character traits. As a fan of Jude Deveraux, I have not been disappointed with this new series. There are always some interesting plot twists at the end. Justice prevails as the police arrest the murderers if still alive at the end of the book. For the underdog fan there are definitely some fun characters to get behind. The first two books A Willing Murder and A Justified Murder are set in the small town of Lachlan, Florida. The third book takes the trio to Oxley Manor in England. My only disappointment is how long I have to wait to see if there will be another book and if the trio will return to Lachlan.
